Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests or news about this unprecedented US presidential election—and our coverage is never paid for by the oil and gas companies or the campaigns and superPACs. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on your support. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $8 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Please do your part today.

NATO and the Kosovo Liberation Army formally signed an agreement early today requiring the rebels to disarm and demilitarize.

The accord states that the KLA must follow a strict timetable placing its weapons in storage depots, taking down roadblocks and checkpoints and stopping its fighters from appearing in public military uniform.

Meanwhile, President Clinton said today the U.S. will not contribute "a penny" to rebuilding bridges and other infrastructure in Yugoslavia as long as President Slobodan Milosevic remains in power. However, Clinton said the United States will give the country humanitarian aid to rebuild hospitals and power plants.

And German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said today that an international summit for the reconstruction of the Balkans will take place in Sarajevo in July.
